Finding a treasure for some may mean striking oil, for others gold; but for local quilter Jennifer Fry, treasure comes in the form of quilting blocks made by her great-grandmother, Lucille Klatt.
The quilting blocks were started by Fry’s great-grandmother but were never utilized in a completed quilt.
They were misplaced approximately 23 years ago during a household consolidation and had been missing ever since, until recently.
In 2017, the quilting blocks were unearthed and Fry inherited the collection.
The blocks are made with a compilation of fabrics Klatt collected and worked on over a long period, the family is unsure of exact time frames.
Fry describes some of the fabric in the blocks as “possibly feed-sacks or flour-sacks.”
